Sandy Spang says she is energized by her third place
finish in the Toledo City Council at-large race, and she's hoping to make an
impact at city hall as soon as she takes office.
"I was elected with a clear message of small business and
neighborhoods. I know that's what people expect me to work on and I will,"
She says her commitment to make Toledo more business-friendly
will not be lip service, as she promises to dive head-first into the city's
regulatory red tape to look for improvements.
"Someone who really understands the business climate in
Toledo and truly understands what it means to be business-friendly," she said. "I'm
especially interested in the regulations and ordinances and approval times that
govern small business."
Spang will join former Councilman and Mayor Jack Ford on
council, along with incumbents Rob Ludeman and Steve Steel, who both won
another term on council. The counting of provisional ballots will determine the
outcome of the final two at-large seats, between Theresa Gabriel, Adam Martinez
and Larry Sykes.
